Sexual orientation is not a choice
People who are prejudice against gays, lesbians, and bisexuals are simply ignorant. Sexual orientation is not a choice and there is no clear explanation as to why a person is homosexual or bisexual. I believed a person is simply born with this and this becomes them whether they are attracted to same sex, opposite sex, or both sexes.
